White may seem to have a small population, but when the areas just north and south of the city are taken into consideration, the population is closer to 4,200. This has prompted city residents to discuss extending White's city limits.
White, placed at the meeting of Highway 411 and Interstate 75, bridges rural Georgia and urbanized Georgia. Connected as a series of homes and shops, the city serves as a bedroom community for Cartersville, which lies eight miles southwest.
Tire production is among White's hometown industries.
